Remember the body bags, remains of a stroller, a notebook, Nazi numbers tattoed on burned arms, bits of jewelry, military berets…
“But the State of Israel betrayed its victims. It’s a process that began when Yitzhak Rabin called Ofra Felix, a wonderful Israeli girl killed by the terrorists in 1995, “a victim of the peace process”. The Talmud says that in Israel, the dead protect the living. Today it’s less true.
The question everybody has to answer is: why?”
The writer, an Italian journalist with Il Foglio, writes a weekly column for Arutz Sheva. He is the author of the book “A New Shoah”, that researched the personal stories of Israel’s terror victims, published by Encounter. His writing has appeared in publications, such as the Wall Street Journal, Frontpage and Commentary.
Everything has been written about the Israeli commitment not to leave its soldiers behind in the field (be they alive or dead), about the fact that no other country in the world would trade one soldier for a thousand of terrorists, about the excruciating torture that Gilad Shalit’s parents have endured over five years and about the need of relief of the Israeli society.
The Shalit affair is the psycological drama of the Jewish tiny nation under siege.

Although the terms haven’t materially changed in a year, the timing […]
The Gilad Shalit Dilemma By Jerold S. Auerbach http://www.americanthinker.com/printpage/?url=http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/../2011/10/the_gilad_shalit_dilemma.html In Haifa eight years ago, Asaf Zur was returning home from school. Along the way, his fellow bus passenger, a Hamas suicide bomber, blew himself up and killed seventeen Israelis, mostly school children like 17-year-old Asaf. The bomb belt worn by the terrorist was made by […]
The Exasperation of the Democratic BillionaireReal-estate and newspaper mogul Mortimer Zuckerman voted for Obama but began seeing trouble as soon as the stimulus went into the pockets of municipal unions.
MIGHTY MOGUL MORT ALSO FORKED OVER MILLIONS TO BUY THE GAZA STATE OF THE ART FARMS THAT PRODUCED MILLIONS IN PROFITS FOR THE GAZARABS…THEY THANKED HIM BY TRASHING AND DESTROYING AND RAZING ALL THE HOMES, GREENHOUSES, MACHINERY, IRRIGATION AND SEEDS….. BUT IN THE IMMORTAL WORDS OF TEVYE…”WHEN YOU’RE RICH THEY THINK YOU REALLY KNOW”…RSK
‘It’s as if he doesn’t like people,” says real-estate mogul and New York Daily News owner Mortimer Zuckerman of the president of the United States. Barack Obama doesn’t seem to care for individuals, elaborates Mr. Zuckerman, though the president enjoys addressing millions of them on television.
The Boston Properties CEO is trying to understand why Mr. Obama has made little effort to build relationships on Capitol Hill or negotiate a bipartisan economic plan. A longtime supporter of the Democratic Party, Mr. Zuckerman wrote in these pages two months ago that the entire business community was “pleading for some kind of adult supervision” in Washington and “desperate for strong leadership.” Writing soon after the historic downgrade of U.S. Treasury debt by Standard & Poor’s, he wrote, “I long for a triple-A president to run a triple-A country.”

Giuliani would not have tolerated Zuccoti Park being turned into an extension of Berkeley, but he understood that the city had to be livable for its residents. Bloomberg still thinks of New York as an international […]
Your Handy Dandy EnergyGate Cheat Sheet #solyndra [Updated]
Trying to keep track of all of the government-authorized theft of taxpayer dollars in the name of “green energy”? I know: it’s difficult, given that new disclosures seem to occur daily.
For that reason, I’ve assembled a running cheat sheet to help keep all of the Democrat politicians, the crony capitalists, the conflicts-of-interest, and the outright criminality straight. I know, I know — it’s a difficult job, but someone’s got to do it.
• Harry Reid, according to The New York Times, “was instrumental in securing” DOE financing for “clean energy projects on government-owned land”
• Reid, in particular, helped secure $145 million for a company called “Nevada Geothermal Power”
• Reid has not publicly commented on a recent audit by Deloitte & Touche that expressed doubt that the company would survive
• Reid also hasn’t called for investigations of where the taxpayers’ money went; he’s apparently too busy
Anthony Podesta raised over $350,000 for Democratic campaign committees this year
• Podesta’s lobbying company has received roughly $670,000 in the last two years lobbying on behalf of a “green energy company” called SolarReserve
• Podesta’s lobbying apparently helped get SolarReserve a $737 million DOE loan last week
Ronald Pelosi is the brother-in-law of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
• Pelosi is an executive with Pacific Corporate Group, a private equity group
• Pelosi’s firm invested in SolarReserve
• Pelosi’s firm benefited directly when the DOE approved a $737 million loan last week
And Now The State Department Blames the Jews
Well, even the State Department is on the matter of the olive trees:
Israel/Palestinians: Uprooting of Palestinian Olive Trees
Question Taken at the October 13, 2011 Daily Press Briefing
Question: Is the State Department aware of Israeli settlers uprooting Palestinian olive trees? What is the State Department’s reaction?
Answer: We are aware that Israeli settlers are again destroying Palestinian trees. The United States condemns and calls for an immediate end to such actions. We note the Government of Israel is working to address the situation. Those perpetrating these provocative acts should be arrested and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
Dear Friend & Supporter, America is at a crossroads. With job losses mounting, getting America working again will be job #1 for our next President. Unfortunately, the current occupant of the White House thinks repeating its failed policies of temporary tax gimmicks and increased spending is the answer for our current economic malaise. The good […]

Karoui’s family had only just escaped, the news presenter said. Sofiane Ben Hmida, one of […]
http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/print/280198 Perry’s Power PoliticsGov. Rick Perry has released a jobs plan. Or is it an energy plan? Or it is an EPA-reform plan? Or is it a trade-deficit plan? The plan is a bit of each, and it is a very good one. Governor Perry, under whom Texas enjoyed the strongest job-creation record of any […]
